Light but steady voter turnout this morning

Predictions of light but steady turnout for Tuesday’s primary elections seem accurate — at least judging from morning voting at a few locations.


  1. Light but steady is what I’ve seen in Gwinnett as well. The local elections office is predicting 22 – 30%, a bit lower the SoS is predicting. I think we’ll be around 22% when all is said and done.

  2. Mike Hauncho says:

    A friend is working at a precinct in Alpharetta and said they only had 35 voters by 12:30.

  3. Bill Simon says:

    Call the Gwinnett Sheriff’s office to get those deputies out there with Green’s car magnets on their cars to round-up some laggards to get them to the polls, toot-sweet!

  4. AtlConservative says:

    I am on the Dekalb/Futlon line (I literally was in Dekalb 10 feet and there was the viting place!). There was a small line at 7am. Then one of the main computers shut off. Back up 5 minutes later with no one showing up behind me. I expected to be the only one there, so I was happy to see the line!

  5. El_Capatain says:

    voted in Fulton, no line during lunch. Headed to Dekalb to vote next, and then Cherokee for final vote. J.K.

    Voting in Lula was fairly laid back this morning. Only one other voter was there at about 7:20, and I shared a few laughs with “Clyde from L.A.” after casting my ballot. That’s exactly right.

  7. jsm says:

    Not so fast, there, Taft. I don’t live inside them thar city limits, or I’d a run for city council already.

  8. The Comma Guy says:

    I voted about 30 minutes ago. While waiting for my name to be found on the touch screen so I could be given a chip for the voting machine, a voter summoned one of the poll workers over because her ballot was defective. She had looked and looked but couldn’t find Obama’s name anywhere. I so badly wanted to confiscate her voter registration at that point it hurt.

  9. Mike Hauncho says:

    I wonder what percentage of votes were cast between 5and 7pm were Republican ballots?

  10. MountainThinker says:

    Up in Union Co, voter turnout is reasonably high, but a train load of Republicans are crossing over to try to oust the incumbent democrat sole commissioner. So far there were 1500 absentee/early votes and nearly 1300 were democrat ballots…
